How does a doctor test for ADHD.
When I taught the doctors always asked us to gather behavioral data: time on task; time off task.
Some doctors would medicate from parents reporting.
There were often large discrepancies between teacher observations and parents’ (usually the mother) observations.

I believe that @mamacita also knows something about how doctors test for ADHD, @helenfrances.

"How does a doctor test for ADHD."
I have three boys with ADHD. A psychologist does the assessment – not your doctor.
They were in school, and the psychologist sent the report to the school. The report was recognized and respected by the school Awareness at school is critical.
